We had a great trip on a night time paddle from Brynich Lock. Really loved being out at night, not something we would’ve done ourselves but was great fun and very relaxing with Martin, who was brilliant! Loved it.

Great trip! Had a relaxed paddle along the canal, with our expert guide helping us navigate the odd obstacle (including a flotilla of swans!) and providing some tips to improve our technique. Highly recommend whether a complete beginner or experienced SUPer 😊
